Thanks for your question


Your solicitor has a lien on your file until such time as the bill is settled I'm afraid. You can pay the bill and then dispute the amount at a later date.

With conveyancing files however your new conveyancing solicitor should be able to write to the vendor's solicitor to request the contract, property information forms and supporting documentation so that the transaction can proceed though. You should be fine providing the vendor's solicitors are prompt in replying.
